39 Confining users with pam_apparmor

An AppArmor profile applies to an executable program; if a portion of the program needs different access permissions than other portions need, the program can change hats via change_hat to a different role, also known as a subprofile. The pam_apparmor PAM module allows applications to confine authenticated users into subprofiles based on group names, user names, or a default profile. To accomplish this, pam_apparmor needs to be registered as a PAM session module.

The package pam_apparmor is not installed by default, you can install it using YaST or zypper. Details about how to set up and configure pam_apparmor can be found in /usr/share/doc/packages/pam_apparmor/README after the package has been installed. For details on PAM, refer to Chapter 2, Authentication with PAM.
